Material play for smother - forming and determining new ideas based on the limits and capabilities of the material at hand.
Trying to translate some loose ideas into a tangible form by revisiting a cluster of well worn familiar and agreeable questions:
+ can I stretch the inherent potential of the material in unexpected ways?
+ am I highlighting and celebrating the material?
+ will it achieve the results I'm expecting?
+ am I traveling down a road less traveled? ie what are the usual connotations associated with the material? What do I want the material to say instead?
+ will the manner in which I'm employing the material create a shift in perception so the viewer can experience the core idea of the work in an unexpected or less predetermined way?
